2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Wow, we can’t find a decent pilsener in Autria. Every one we have tried is kind of like this one: boring!!!! Stale pale yellow in color, nothing going on with this one. Skunky smell, too many poor quality hops. Taste is too light, too much carbonation...leads to unpleasant consequences. Don’t like this one much!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale colour, not much head but some clumpy lacing on the glass.
Very little aroma, some cooked spaghetti.
Lean but solid malt flavour. Dryish, balanced finish, some hops in there. Light body. Nice, but hardly exciting.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
a nice, very ordinary hoppy pils. Crispy taste, maybe too crispy. Lack of character, a little boring but drinkable

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2004 Smell of slight skunk, dishwater and stale socks. I maybe getting quite harsh on mainstream lagers. But don't stop me yet...
Very yellow colour and little head. Taste isn't bad really. Bit Watery, but some aftertaste that reminds of international Dutch offerings. Nothing special, but not all that bad.
Re-rate: no, notes, but new numbers. Better than I remembered, but not special still.

This beer really hits the taste buds strongly but nicely. This beer proves that a beer does not have to look good to taste good. This beer has a nice sweet flavour and a sharp pleasurable aftertaste. Maybe able to call this beer a dry. A good drop that surprised me in quality.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blond color. Lemon soda aroma. Dry taste, too weak body and malt, correct bitterness, pretty strong final. Quite boring.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light golden color. Pours a good and fairly lasting head which leaves some lace on the glass. Nice hops in aroma (which is more intense than in other pilsner) and taste. Clean, refreshing, slightly bitter. Body is light to medium. Finish is moderately bitter and decently lasting. Not bad.

I liked this beer a lot. I only felt it was a bit on the flat side. But it has a nice hoppy flavour to it, and it's a bit sweet -- but that's okay with me.
